Sarah is kind, compassionate, attentive and patient. She is able to hear the secret messages intertwined in my words and ask questions to support bringing these to the surface of my awareness. She's able to navigate us through hard truths and deep wounding with grace and subtlety, but she can be direct when necessary to instill a particular point. She's the right measure of caring and supportive, knowledgeable and intuitive. Her charm and demeanor soften the most difficult conversations. Our sessions always leave me thinking, feeling and seeking more and shes excellent about matching thay energy with supportive assignments, exercises and chev-ins between sessions. If you are seeking a therapist who exhibits the humanity, authenticity and spirit you would find in a cherished friend with the wisdom, experience and knowledge you expect from a medical professional, Sarah is perfect. I've worked with many therapists over the course of mine and my children's lives and she is the best of the best. Highly recommend.

Sarah has been a very kind and understanding person who has helped me find the root of a lot of my anxieties. Her insights have helped me make it through some very difficult times, and I plan to be her client for the foreseeable future.
Prior to her I hadn't had a positive therapy experience. Once she began to help me I realized that finding the right therapist is a super important step in the process. Thank you Sarah!
